I. Introduction

On July 29, 2014, the Postal Service filed notice that it has agreed to a second Amendment to the existing Parcel Select Contract 2 negotiated service agreement approved in this docket.[1] In support of its Notice, the Postal Service includes a redacted copy of the Amendment.

The Postal Service also filed the unredacted Amendment under seal. The Postal Service seeks to incorporate by reference the Application for Non-Public Treatment originally filed in this docket for the protection of information that it has filed under seal. Id. at 1.

The Amendment revises Section I.F of the agreement concerning annual price adjustments. Id., Attachment A, at 1. The Postal Service states that the revised language was inadvertently excluded from the first Amendment filed in this docket on March 18, 2014. Id. at 1. It asserts that the second Amendment will not materially affect the cost coverage of Parcel Select Contract 2. Id. Thus, it asserts that the supporting financial documentation and financial certification previously provided in this docket remain applicable. Id.

Comments are due no later than August 6, 2014. The public portions of these filings can be accessed via the Commission's Web site (http://www.prc.gov).

III. Request for Supplemental Information

To clarify the Postal Service's filings in this proceeding, the Postal Service is requested to provide written responses to the following questions:

1. Section I.F.3 of the Amendment states that “[t]he Postal Service shall supply Customer with the updated price for each cell shown in Table 1 no later than May 1st of each Contract Year.” Id., Attachment A, at 1. However, the Amendment does not contain any tables. Please clarify what effect the Amendment is intended to have on Table 1 listed directly after Section I.F.4. of the original contract (e.g., remove, replace, or leave Table 1 intact). If the Amendment is intended to replace the table directly after Section I.F.4 of the original contract with a different table, please file the revised table with the Commission.

2. Neither the Notice nor the Amendment contains language describing the effective date of the Amendment. Please identify the effective date of the Amendment.

The Postal Service's response to the request for supplemental information is due no later than August 4, 2014.
